Sisters of St. Peter Claver

Old North, Link, Sunset Memorial Park 450

We couldn’t figure out if this small convent in Town and Country, off of old Route 141 was still occupied. There is a redevelopment notice posted out front saying that a school is moving in. The nuns were there as late as 2013. The property is well-maintained, but there were no signs of life around. I find these small religious structures tucked away in hidden corners of the county fascinating.

    That is a huge chunk of mega-dollar value property. That school must have some bigga-buck donors. It’s a “traditional,” pre-modern Church school, apparently…
